Fashion Designer Isaac Mizrahi: How to Have Style
Iconic fashion designer Isaac Mizrahi doesn't believe in makeovers.
A makeover often implies that the person looked terrible to start, he says. For Mizrahi, it's more about solving style problems: are you challenged by a tight budget? A full figure? A petite figure? A schedule packed with work travel? A lack of time or inspiration?
With his award-winning flair and fashion acumen, Mizrahi now brings us HOW TO HAVE STYLE (Gotham Paperback Original; October 2008; $30), a beautiful primer that will help every woman resolve her style predicaments and unleash her inner fashionista.
Showcasing Mizrahi's singular approach to looking great, How to Have Style begins with the premise that all women should wear what inspires them. Using twelve real women facing real wardrobe dilemmas, Mizrahi walks readers through the fundamentals of finding a personal style that reflects their authentic selves. With more than 600 dazzling photographs as well as Mizrahi's own sketches, How to Have Style makes it simple to look your best.
A twenty-year veteran of the fashion industry, Isaac Mizrahi believes that fashion should be seriously fun. Mizrahi's How to Have Style is a fun, real-life style guide that teaches women how to tap into their inner creativity to create a look entirely their own. In How to Have Style, Mizrahi takes twelve real women, each with their own style dilemmas, and shows them how to look great. Lisa wants to reinvent herself; Manning wants to be stylish on a budget; Keri wants to look funny and sexy; Rebecca wants to get out of a jeans coma, while Brooke wants to find the right jeans, and Susan is looking for stunning evening wear.
Mizrahi shares his style rules on everything from boots to bags, from skirt length to the right undergarments. Other features include:
From the king of real-world chic, How to Have Style will inspire women on how to have fun creating stylish and beautiful looks that embody their own personal style and work with their lifestyle.
